[Duplicated from related post]

Thank you for responding. It seems as though you are saying that your comment referencing the alternate study serves the purpose of officially correcting the error in the original paper. However, the Lohr et al paper is not included in the list of references of the original paper. I'm still unclear as to why it would not be more accurate to add that paper into the list of references and to change the actual citation to reflect that.

It is also worth noting that the Lohr et al paper was published several weeks after the Petersen et al paper that now retroactively cites it.

In any event, I appreciate your making this correction so that readers (at least on-line readers) will know that the Stoskopf and Nutter paper does not actually address questions of relative cost and efficiency.
